Publisher's Summary

There are only two ways a human can cross the gates of Bloodstone Institute: as a familiar to one of the Blueblood vampires who attend the elite school or as a snack. 

I'm neither, but I have to get in at all costs. My brother made a big mistake, and now I have to fix it by stealing from the most powerful and cruel vampire to ever come to Bloodstone, Lucca Della Morte. If that wasn't almost suicidal, I need to get it done before the spell concealing my human nature wears off.  

But I forget that I'm only pretending to be a vampire. I'm still human and susceptible to Lucca's dangerous allure. His darkness calls to my soul. His savagery makes my blood sing. I'm falling for the dark prince, craving him in a visceral way that's frightening and exciting at the same time. 

If he discovers my secret, he'll destroy me. And yet, I can't help wanting to get closer. I never thought I had a death wish until I met him. 

Contains mature themes.

Wow! How I Needed This!

What a beautiful surprise "Dark Prince" turned out to be! I was tired of looking for a paranormal romance that fit my reading preferences, and I saw the glowing reviews assigned to "Dark Prince," so I decided to take a chance. I prepared to be disappointed because the mention of a vampire school made me fear that I was entering teenage CW land or a YA experience, but thankfully I was sooo wrong. Ms. Hercules's novel has the perfect mix of plot and sizzle. Personally, I like a deeper plunge into characterization, but that didn't stop me from becoming invested in not only the hero and heroine, but the colorful supporting personalities as well. I was truly entertained by "Dark Prince," and as soon as the sequel comes out on Audible, I will add it to my library.
Another IMPORTANT reason to purchase "Dark Prince" is the deliciously talented Troy Duran. His rich, smooth, professional reading is perfection. I own over 500 Audible titles, and never have I enjoyed a male narrator as much as I did, Troy Duran. In addition to Duran's talents, listeners have the added bonus of the gifted Mindy Kennedy. Mindy's voice is perfectly paired with Duran's because she is expressive and entertaining without affectation. I do hope Michelle Hercules continues to use these amazing narrators in her future works.

Great new series and can't wait for the next book. Narrators should get a 10 on their performances. Troy Duran has the sexiest vampire voice.

Nicely done

Narrator's were great as was the story. I enjoyed it but definitely not anything I've not read before. I was expecting a little more heat to this but it was a good balance. for those that don't enjoy too much sex ( myself not included in that lol ) this is the book for you.

Holy YES!!

Read this book! Better yet, listen to it! The narration was phenomenal and the male narrator’s voice is sexy AF! I love paranormal reads, but don’t read them often. Ive had a lot of DNF’s in the genre. But this MFing book was beyond phenomenal!

I adored the characters, loved the storyline and can’t get enough of this world in which the author made seem so real.

I don’t want to give anything away and I’m too jazzed about the book to not spill, so I will just say if you love mysteries with a paranormal setting and hot characters voiced by a sexy AF narrator, then get this book!!

Great book!

I really enjoyed this book! I like a bit of snarky humour, I enjoyed the characters & the plot. Don't want to say to much, don't want to spoil it for anyone . AND, we're all adults here🙈, I'm 49.....if there's a bit of 🔥 in a book, I'm fine with that 😉. The readers Mindy Kennedy & Troy Duran were very good.....talking about 🔥.....Troy Duran's voice works VERY well indeed for a swoon worthy male protagonist. COR BLIMEY!

Good vampire story ❤️‍🔥

The prince gets his girl but what a bumpy road to love. He's dark, dangerous and delicious the three D’s. She's loyal, loveable and lures her dark prince in. The chemistry is hot to the touch 🔥

The narrators were very good at bringing the story to life.

Great story. Loved it. 😃

First time I heared from this author and I liked it a lot. I don't usely read Vampire stories. Only shifter's (Wolf) but this one was good. Narrarators are awesome. Male voice was sexy. I can't wait to hear Aurora's story.

Kiss of life or death?

Absolutely loved it. The narrators brought the author's words to life. They were picked well for the story. I could believe that was how the characters sounded, which only made the immersion that much better. To think that Lucas's kiss could be death to someone like Vivian, but their love changed it to a kiss of life for Luca, and his curse was broken.

Fantastic!

This was an amazing audiobook. This is both a standalone and the first in a series. The romance is complete in this book however, the story continues on in the series with different character's perspectives. I loved this book and would definitely recommend it to anyone who thinks they might like it. Vivienne - the female protagonist is loyal to a fault with her brother and because of this, the entire story begins, as well as the romance. She is someone you can totally get behind though, and definitely became easy to love in the story. Lucca is a character you easily love but it clearly takes a while for Vivienne to find that out, especially when he has a reputation for being bloodthirsty. The narration was amazing, and the storyline even better. I hope you decide to read this. Enjoy!

Loved everything until the end. We should have been given a clear HEA rather peak our interest with Aurora's and Saxon's story 😭.

***Vampires and Nightingales***

I love Michelle Hercules this is my 2nd book from her and I'm not disappointed. It's a paged turner with lots of angst drama and heat. I am a big fan of Mindy Kennedy and Troy Duran both are brilliant in their narrative.
